What is this racing experience like?

Are you ready for the adrenaline pumping, heart-pounding thrills that only break neck speeds can deliver? The Rusty Wallace Racing Experience offers that and more! Your experience begins with some classroom instruction and race theory devised by the stock car champion, Rusty Wallace himself. Then you're off to crawl through the window, strap in and tear out! You can race for 10 record breaking, window shaking laps, right up until you see the checkered flag.
